Question about 1997 Mercury Mountaineer
Heater quite working is there a way to flush it out ,put new thermo in new water pump, still dont get hot,run great
The only thing I can recommend is to put in a flush tee not the hose going to the water pump but the one going to the engine open up the radiator and drain that first then fill with water get some radiator flush and run the car about ten minutes drain that out using the flush tee and a garden hose and run till it is clear with the engine running after clear close drain plug on radiator and fill with antifreeze and make sure to get all air bubbles out and you should start getting some heat and if you don't after doing all this replace the heater core but check the hoses coming from the heater core to make sure one of them is not plugged
